Melbourne is finally lifting itself out of the annual sad seasonal smog to bring us all new life and- wait for it- sunshine! I don’t think I really noticed the correlation between the seasons and my moods until this winter. Now, instead of rolling my corpse off a sizzling electric blanket at 8 every morning, I’m cleansing, toning and moisturising at 7, out the door (happily) by 8 and managing to squeeze a feel-good funny compilation Youtube video break in there. A new woman.
Despite feeling a looming existential crisis most of the time, that is. Early 20’s are hard. Is this the peak of my attractiveness? My housemate Nina said this to me the other day whilst we were laying on her bead, staring at the ceiling with bowls of two minute noodle remnants sprawled across the duvet cover. “You know this is probably the most attractive we’ll ever be?” God, I hope not. Yesterday I arrived at work with greasy coconut oil residue all over my head from a failed hair mask, dirty overalls and stubby little excuses for fingernails because I had bitten them all off during my last lecture. Does everybody else struggle to have it together as much as I do????????? Just curious. Anyway- I better go and work on that. Enjoy these photos of me looking more together than yesterday.

So I’m back on the coast for the holidays and thoroughly enjoying home’s usual delights: family, meals not cooked by me and free petrol. Mainly family. Of course. The Sunshine Coast ain’t so sunny right now (I mean you can’t really complain about 23 degrees, but I’m not swimming in the ocean unless I’m sweating on the shore u feel me) and in all honesty there’s not a tonne of things to do, so Adele and I have been driving around aimlessly for like 3 days now. And it’s been really nice. I feel like the older I get, the more I appreciate doing nothing. And naps! I even read the newspaper with my coffee this morning. That’s called maturity, folks.
I won’t bore you any longer- I miss my housemates dearly but like I said- pretty great to be home. I’ve been vlogging what I can so hopefully I can remember how to edit a video after all this time. It’s been a while. Have a wonderful night x

Good morning! It is day one of my official three days off and I have only moved out of bed for food and a laptop charger to continue the 2-day binge of OITNB. I like to consider myself an all-or-nothing kind of person and when I watch a TV series, I watch 4 seasons in 4 days. Minimal movement. Maximum concentration. It’s a skill, really.
My housemate Tara is a film and photography student and often assists me in the whole taking-photos-of-myself-thing when my tripod fails on me. Sounds a lot more narcissistic when typed. Anyways- we searched down this alleyway and stumbled upon an aesthetically pleasing wall, proceeded to set ourselves up in front of it and promptly moved after discovering ACTUAL HUMAN FECES ft. TOILET PAPER covering the ground. I actually gagged. On the contrary- it’s sunny outside, albeit 5 degrees- and doesn’t smell like faces most of the time. We’re going on a picnic. Have a wonderful day.
